Virtual Business Opportunities Seminar 2020 with The Netherlands

22 September 2020

ADB undertakes Business Opportunities Seminars (BOSs) in its members to improve the interest and ability of eligible suppliers to locate ADB business opportunities, prepare high-quality and responsive bids, and understand ADB’s procurement and anticorruption procedures. For 2020, a series of virtual BOSs with constituent countries are underway. It allowed increased participation by ADB speakers and greater flexibility in seminar design. Procurement, Portfolio and Financial Management Department (PPFD) will support host organizations to plan and deliver an engaging virtual event using any desired videoconferencing platform, flexible around the practical realities of maintaining virtual audience engagement.

For this BOS, ADB partnered with The Netherlands Enterprise Agency. There was a discussion regarding waste-to-energy, circular economy and ocean health. There was also a presentation on ADB's procurement system and doing business with ADB.
